WASHINGTON — Most caregivers of injured veterans feel isolated from friends, unsupported by the government and less healthy because of the demands of their responsibilities, according to a new survey released by Disabled American Veterans on Monday.
But the vast majority are also overwhelmingly proud of the service they provide to their loved ones.
Veterans with reproductive injuries will be able to access fertility help and have some adoption expenses covered after 2018 if a funding proposal goes forward.
The funding bill for the Department of Veterans Affairs approved by a House committee last week gives the agency approval to continue funding in-vitro fertilization after the current 2018 expiration. A 2016 law lifted a longtime ban on the coverage but is set to expire at the end of 2018 if Congress takes no further action.
